In their quest for basic human rights, modern-day Iranians are combatting the extreme treatment of a brutal and oppressive regime in a way which mirrors that of their ancestors — through revolt. This lecture highlights the struggle for freedom, women’s rights and democracy in Iran over the past 100 years with a focus on the use of art as propaganda and more recently, as a social movement and form of global revolt.

This class is available to purchase individually, or at a discounted rate when the course pass is purchased.
